ICI's Diamond GMM, Day Three
Paul Schott Stevens and his team will wrap up the Investment Company Institute's (ICI's) 60th annual General Membership Meeting (GMM) this morning at the Washington Hilton with a half day of sessions, largely featuring speakers from outside the industry. The 2018 ICI GMM began on Tuesday and continued yesterday.
A breakfast session is already underway, featuring ICI chief Stevens interviewing Michael Piwowar, a Republican SEC commissioner. Earlier this month, Piwowar revealed that he will resign by July 7 or when a successor is sworn in, whichever comes first.
Next up will be a session about technology disruptors. Tom Eck, chief technology officer for industry platforms at IBM, will speak on "Embracing Change: Artificial Intelligence and the Cloud." And Adam Jonas, managing director and analyst at Morgan Stanley, will speak on "The Future of Transportation."
Finally, NASA astronaut Jerry Linenger (also a retired U.S. Navy captain and flight surgeon who spent nearly five months on the Russian space station Mir) will deliver the final keynote address, entitled "Challenges and Change: My 132 Days Off the Planet."
The 61st ICI GMM will again be held in Washington, D.C., May 1-3, 2019.
